My old man has been crucified with Him

My old man has been crucified with Him,
With all its foul corruption deep within;
And buried too its nature serpentine,
Completely finished—this great fact is mine,
  I hold it fast.
But there’s a Person in my spirit now,
Born as a babe so small, so weak, so low;
Who by the Word’s pure milk will grow to be
The overcoming inner man in me
  To gain my heart.
Christ as my Person must possess my heart
And be preeminent in every part.
The former owner died but haunts it still.
O Lord, move in; my mind, emotion, will
  Now welcome Thee.
In spirit mingled, we are one, O Lord,
The human and divine in one accord;
Yet Thou must have a proper faculty
That all Thy glorious personality
  May be expressed.
So, Lord, I give my heart to Thee today,
That it may be Thy home in every way,
A place for Thee to come and settle down,
And all Thy grand recovery work to crown
  In one new man.

Lord Jesus, move in every part of our being. Amen. Lord Jesus, may we give our hearts to You ever day. Amen. Please settle down more deeply in our hearts, minds, emotions, and wills, Lord Jesus. Amen.

Hallelujah! Christ as MY PERSON *must* possess MY HEART. And be PREEMINENT in EVERY PART.

So Lord move in! My mind, emotion, will.

Saints, I am so thoroughly touched with this portion of the song. I realize that many times, there are parts in my being that still belongs to the self. But PTL, we can cry out for the Lord to move in, even our hidden parts.

I love that I can sing this hymn as a prayer to the Lord. It exactly captured the longing to be fully mingled with the Lord as our new man to be our new personality. How we must give our heart to the Lord every day!
